Gordon’s Sloe Gin

From Tanqueray Gordons Ltd

Gordon’s Sloe gin, a British classic, was first released in 1906 and builds on centuries of tradition. Using hand-picked sloes form the UK and Northern Europe, the gin is a stunning shade of deep plum and has aromas of cherry, nectarine and marzipan.

Rich and complex, with a luxurious tongue-coating texture. A harmony of bold fruit and tart berry flavours, rounded out by the dry, crisp juniper of the underlying gin and a light touch of residual sweetness.

Gordons take the finest wild sloe berries and steep them gently, before adding Gordon’s gin. The result is a wonderful tipple that marries the dryness of Gordon’s with cassis sweetness – perfect in cocktails, as an alternative G&T, or simply on its own (but always with friends!). Prepared from wild sloe berries and Gordon’s gin – Gordon’s Sloe Gin is a traditional British treasure.
